Steam Plant Abatement Back On Board of Public Works Agenda

Chillicothe’s Board of Public Works will meet MONDAY at 11:30 am.   The meeting is held at the CMU Office and includes reports from the department heads and the General Manager.

For the Electric Department, discussions will continue on the demolition of the old steam plant.  The building has a considerable amount of asbestos and other hazardous materials that will need to be removed.  CMU received three bids for the abatement.  The bids range from just under $1.1 million to just under $1.4 million dollars.

A board member that was absent from the previous meeting had concerns on spending that amount of money with no return and the board chose to table the discussion until the board member could present his concerns.
